New Report Suggests Call Of Duty 2021 Will Use Modern Warfare And Call Of Duty: Warzone’s IW8 Engine
According to VGC, Call of Duty 2021 will use Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone’s ‘IW8’ game engine.
VGC believes that Call of Duty 2021 will probably share progression and weapons with Call of Duty: Warzone. However, there’s still no word on how far the integration will go past that point.
When Modern Warfare first released in 2019, many players and critics praised the game’s new and improved engine. The praise around this new ‘IW8’ engine only continued when Activision released Call of Duty: Warzone last year.
So, it’s not too hard to see why Sledgehammer Games would potentially use Modern Warfare and Warzone’s engine for Call of Duty 2021.
Call Of Duty WWII: Vanguard
Alongside this news, VGC was able to corroborate our report from earlier in the week stating that the working title for Call of Duty 2021 is “Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard.”
Eurogamer also verified our report, stating that “Activision’s current plan is to stick with the Vanguard subtitle for the final version.”
However, here’s where things get a bit tricky.
We at ModernWarzone have previously reported that Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard will take place in an alternate timeline where World War II didn’t end in 1945.
As Eurogamer understands it, the game will have a traditional WWII setting.
As of this writing, we’re still sticking with our original report on this detail.
